When someone asked Nag Ashwin (Kalki 2898 AD director) about the parallels between Dune and Kalki 2898 AD, he responded funnily.

Recently, the highly anticipated movie’s release date was revealed by the Kalki 2898 AD crew, who also posted a brand-new poster with Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, and Amitabh Bachchan. Netizens quickly began comparing Deepika’s appearance and Zendaya’s from the movie Dune. The film’s director, Nag Ashwin, has now addressed the issue that it is too close to Dune.

A viewer asked the director, “Project K looks a lot like the Hollywood movie Dune,” at the VFX Summit in Hyderabad. It’s due to the sand, Nag retorted. Yes, they (another student) saw that there was sand in the film. In essence, everything that has sand will resemble Dune.

Previously, Nag Ashwin had stated, “The film starts with Mahabharat and ends in 2898 AD,” at the Synapse 2024 event in Gurgaon. It covers a period of 6000 years. We endeavored to construct worlds, envisioning their potential while preserving Indian culture and avoiding a Blade Runner aesthetic.

The director added that he hasn’t used Soras from OpenAI. “We had to build so many sets, designs, and vehicles for this film,” the director remarked. The ideation, conceptualization, construction, prototyping, equipment, and aging processes took a long time. This is not what I would have to do if I had used Sora.

A sci-fi saga called Kalki 2898 AD is coming soon. Disha Patani and Kamal Haasan play important roles in it as well. The film will now be released on June 27 instead of May 9, as originally scheduled.
